A Tribute To Herbert Simon >> Work >> Computer Science Research


Herbert SimonHerbert Simon's areas of interest in computer science:

  • artificial intelligence
  • human-computer interaction
  • principles of the organization of humans and machines is information processing systems
  • the use of computers to study (by modeling) philosophical problems of the nature of intelligence and of epistemology
  • the social implications of computer technology.
